commissioners and staff to welcome you back to the san francisco port. and this historic pier 48. pier 48 as you may know was one of the last piers built right before world war ii. it was built in concert with pier 45 and fisherman's wharf in the changes of technology in cargo movement. those changes were stimulated by the fact that we had two bridges opening up here in the bay. and our opportunities to move cargo changed by vessel and rail to also by truck. pier 48 as you can see is much like all the other piers you are familiar with. it has a great large and long apron for cargo to be shipped and stored and out into distribution. the difference of pier 48 than others you know. on this side is a second transit shed with another apron. in the middle is a long divide. that's where the rail cars and the trucks came in to pick up the cargo. across the way is seawall lot 337. that was filled in by the santa fe railway. in order to create a new headquarters for their train movement. that would go down the peninsula and out into the greater california area. and seawall 337 known as lot "a" and

our neighborhood park and is streets and we did just that with our million dollar general obligation bond to build and construct more open space most importantly, we put san franciscans back to work and we have a growing economy and we have invested in our city. so the year of 20 if we will, was about getting everything done. and when we did that, we were complimented by an unemployment rate that went in the last two years from 9.6% to as of december, 6.5% one of the lowest in the whole state of california that meant that 31,000 people got jobs in san francisco putting a lot more people back to work. today, when we run around our city, or ride around it or walk around it, you can count 26 criterions in the skyline of san francisco. that means thousands of good construction jobs, all residents being a portion of those constructions from the central subway to the new crudes ship terminal to the trans bay terminal that you see being constructed and the pictures of the new tour the tal tallest building west of the mississippi will be under construction shortly. nearly 11 million square feet of commercial office space was leashed out last year and 11 million is equivalent to 20 trans america buildings. half of which belong to the technology company that is have started here grown here and come here from other places our airport had a ground breaking record 44.5 million passengers passed through san francisco in 2012 that was that is an 8.6% increase from the preview years and we expect that to be broken in 2013. we have truly become the innovation capital of the world something that we probably announced last year and we have that with 1800 technology expect s and pulled over 32,000 employee and is growing everyday in fact. the growth ---we have strong public partnership with these technology companies, we signed just this past week, community benefit agreements with twitter as they began increasing the employment along market street. and those c ba.'s are incredibly important to us because they were as many historic companies that came to the city did for many many years, they represent the relationship that we want to have where the companies are not just making good money and employing a lot of people but also, looking at the environmental surroundings where they are located and seeing what they can do to help lift up those neighborhoods. so they are investing in the employees and signing agreements to say that whether it's a memorial or a kitchen to help clean up and use the great theme that the giants have given us which, is the "giant sweep," remember that? we are using that as the city wide effort to keep our city beautiful. sparkling and clean and educating youth and provide the scholarships and support for them and using culture -- about the cleanliness of our neighborhoods and respecting our neighborhoods all throughout our city. we are also engaging the bright technological mindsen joining us in s f city and join the chambers in creating jobs and training for those last year, last summer, over 5,005,000 and eight jobs were created for summer for our youth, paying jobs every single one of them and this year we expect to exceed it with your help and the help of other companies here and we need to create hope in every aspect for our youth as mayor khan said they are going to inherit the city and the successes that we are pawk talking about today, they are going to also inherit failure and is we want to have less failures with their invest and investment in them and in companies like sales force zooma and at which timer are all leading the evident with the 1800 other technology companies to help us create this investor confidence that companies are leading they started to come to transportation to participate in had very strong innovatic spirit whether it's the pack 12 enterprises or pine tress, my own daughter getting married much october is using pine tress this october for her wedding plans and that is great. so it's not just the job creation because in talking with continual company and is as well as our chamber of commerce members we have to invest in our education we have we have been in front informed in a deliberate way that many companies started here and want to grow but they are running out of talent and they are having to look overseas where we could be creating generationings's of people that have the stem and steam skills. science, frontpage, engineering, arts and math. those are the key skill sets. and i had a chance to meet with all of our san francisco chancellor and is i see chancellor here today from -- state and he joined me with chancellor helm man from uc s f city college our own public schools superintendentent to form a major education leadership counsel to advise me in making sure that the skill sets that we need in the jobs in the future are being trained and reflected in the education curriculum and how to support not only the institutions, but all of the different programs that we can use to lift up all of the educational stands for our youth i have person learn adopted 12 middle schools in san francisco to make sure each principal gets what they need to campus to support teachers effort on campus to raise the educational needs of the schools. middle school is the biggest challenge with truancy and educational challenges and we know that while we are increasing the performance stand of the whole cities one of the highest increases in the whole state is happening here in the public schools in san francisco they are to the satisfied with just a bump we need to taken it at the highest levels and train from elementary to middle to high school and the college all of the kids in our skill set is so they can become the grounds for recruitment for every industry in our city that whether it's healthcare, technology, or whether it's tourism, and all the other great things that are happening in our city. and in fact we invested in 2012 in kid s f a special program we got funding from from the government federal department. labor to create the technology training center tech s f to reach out to disadvantaged kids in our city and make sure that they are getting the skill sets and the support that they need to so they can get in and really help us get rid of this digital guide that we suffer from and continue to suffer from in many of our communities and so transit center district plan, it's approved in september, if you see the cranes going up - you will know and you should realize that this center will represent 27,000 jobs just in that corridor. four -- of thousand new homes will be built as a result of that center and one thousand new hotel roonrooms and dwell acres of new open space and you are going to ask me where is that open space going to come from? imagine this it will be open space that is above the current surface ground, new spaces with the connection of all the towers, so look out for that that is going to be a such an exciting welcome toth for the high speed rail and as that as a transit hub with all of the connection that is it has to the rest of our 70. we spoke a little bit already about our water front. and we she know that peer 70 is where we are going to make it happen with s f made manufacturing where the covenant we have four thrive companies manufacturing already -- in san francisco from the -- that i chocolates that i just presented to mayor khan to everything from wood shaw bags to do do case which are the upper covers to ceramic and is so many other thing being made here and assist in shipping out those products to the port of oakland to the rest of the world. we are creating for our local manufacturing companies a sense not only that they can manufacture here in a good business climate, and establish those plans here in san francisco at peer 70 and other places but that we will help them as a city to create international market. we are not just satisfactory with national markets, technological expects pharmaceutical company and is products and have the opportunity to work with me. san francisco has the highest concentration of counsel general office and is international embassy offices outside of new york and washington dc we will utilize the city relation to create international markets and they are already capital resistist and is that is why our airport is so throng because of the international visitors coming in. all of this leads to something that i have been pushing very strongly as our theme. investor confidence in san francisco. and we are strong enough that just this week,-moodies increased our ratings for the general obligation bond very few cities can say that is happening in their down right now. we did the right things create reserve after reserve i have been in those rating meetings and they are like interrogation meetings kind-of like a deposition if you have been to one of those and they are asking every single question that is hard to answer questions like if the state famous you what are you goingdo about it? what do you have in place if the federal government fails in their successstration what programs are failed here and what plans do you have to recover?. if you are not answering those with a lot of confidence you are not going to get the moodies rating increased at all and if you are able to do that with a solid t and i want to thank again the board of supervisor and is i know supervisor chu and reno are here today but i want to thank the entire board for creating an entire investor confidence because it's that level of collaboration and partnership that we need in every one of our economic discussions to have and build on the successes that we have already seen. putting people back to work will continue being -- a thing that i'll lead with the board of supervisor and is whether it's in education, or in the transportation that we have identified, in the technology, and the healthcare, in the gulf of mission bay that continues to be so strong that pharmaceutical companies from other countries wanting to locate their offices here so that they can collaborate with the innovative spirit that is going on in mission bay, i want to thank all of the leaders in our mission bay from the private sector as well as the public sector, uc s f for an ling that for happening and i want to touch on what mayor khan said we can never be as successful as a city as we want to be unless we pay attention to the gun have the vls in our city and is no different than mayor khan or any urban mayor across the state or country. we are extremely concerned about our gun violence we have to reduce it. and you already know what we have announced in san francisco the possession the very possession of powerpoint ammuntion or automatic weapon tree has no -- in our streets or inner city and is so we offered our own legislature locally but we also know the very reality is just controlling borders won't help and so we have asked all of the mayors and county administration across california do the same and joined our state legislature and some eight other seniors to support their effort state wide and to support president obama and senior fine fine stein on their national events and i want to take a moment to make sure that we hong hospital members of sandy hook continue keeping them in our minds and but also, that things that are not as announced but every single week whether it's oakland san jose or san francisco, that is young kid and i get this text every night calf can american meal 17 -years-old victim, to the chess, to the head. we have got to end this gun violence we have got do embrace, strategies that work so that, you can keep our cities safe. that will help us, as much as education is, as much as investment in housing is as much as investing in buss as well. it's got to be the whole package and i don't care what poles say or what political groups say it's the right thing do let's all join together and make sure that happens. (applause) >>> i'll close i want to thank dan and tim for awful their good economic analysis, i think they guided you with that i'll be happy to answer questions in a moment but i'll close with a type thought: you know we are living today in an extraordinary city at a very extraordinary time. a time where there is really anistonnishing innovation and really unlimited promise. and that for this innovation are being created by our own people here in san francisco people who have lived here, worked here and played here from every background, every orientation, they are driving our innovation and pledging the future future right here and right now not just for san franciscoians but for the whole world and i get that because i have been able to bring some of the ideas and service that is we created here to the united states conference in mayors and you should see the other mayors grapple on the innovative ideas coming on from our group cities and i have heard also from this governor from it be texas coming in, you know, i thought the state of texas new how to deal with poachers and cattle pushers but i'll say that lind better news announce the fraction is the best city in the 20 if we will we can probably teach the governor of it can texas to find out how innovation is conducted but you don't have to take my word for it. today we are launching a new campaign and san francisco is celebrating new companies from tech to biotech to manufacturing to design and it's called san francisco is where the world changes. let's hear what they have to say on this video: judicious san francisco is a place where people say yes. it's about making thing happen there is not a lot of benefit, established had a hold you back if you have an idea and you -- people will tell you to go for it. >> technology is based all you need is a computer and a copy machine and you can create your company but you see 20 people in a warehouse trying to start it. this is happening all over here there is a lot of entrepreneur to be around entrepreneurs, i love coming home to san francisco and calling it home and it's forward thinkings and people don't accept the status quo and that let's us see the type of innovation that he we drive on. >> i think there is a culture of we can change the world and i think there is a sense of freedom. there is a sense of freedom that no matter who you want to be and what you bleep, that you have a riebility right do and be and do that here. >> san francisco and silicon valley is going west tortes towards bigger and better things >>> something unique about transportation is that people are willing to share. >> and that is hamming right here starting something new. and there is an attitude that is distinctly different from anywhere else in the world. >> people ask us where do we think -- silicon valuegee and new york it's often impossibly too- [inaudible] the it industry really is starting from the -- down and what that meant is that what was important is for the group and the community and if you made money that was good but it was not the alpha and omega it was the second --. >> i really think that the biggest thing is that san francisco is known for is it's people, it's creativeness around it and the stewed had a they have here and some of the best minds and some of the people that have the most interesting idea come to san francisco to see if it works and what the other creative minds do in reaction to that. >> i think what is really exciting about fraction san francisco is that it's full of people who are hard workers and so there are people constantly looking for new ideas trying to learn what could be the new next solution whether it's a social comprise or a for profit comprise, it's again optimism that -- [inaudible] a problem and that is the way and that images is powerful and the fact that you can do it and the fact that it's -- >>> people are younger we have less history of [inaudible] and so we can try new ideas and new approaches that the east coast and other parts of the country, are more traditional and standard and set in their ways. >> magic to it we have a lot of talent here and we have a lot of innovative spirit and entrepreneurs and next to each other the employees workforce that is located here for some years and has been a real big a trespass for the innovate oir councilmember companies and i think we do what we do does insite having that knowledge sharing with other technology companies with the scientific community and art culture is critical. >> i think the biggest reason is that there is a support culture a lot of people going through the same thing are here and it's a challenge but there is people who are in that challenge with you >>> >>> in this case coming out of -- ([inaudible/incomprehensible] (music is very loud) . >> telling people from anywhere that you can live out your dreams here you can go forward and you won't be alone. there are other people who will join force with you >>> well if you have an interest in technology you are going to find more kindred spirit in the san francisco area than you will find anywhere else. you are also going to find an

streets of san francisco makes you want to sing. when you think of willie brown we like no other. he's the kind of dude that you like as your brother. i say he's the kind of dude that you want as your brother. he's the kind of dude that you want as your brother. [ applause ] but since i'm an old dude, i'm not going to do that because that would seem unseemly. what i do say is when this is all said and done, willie would seem to be an individual who em bodies the classic american story success of invention and reinvention. born of talent, skill, determination, brilliance, lots of plain old hard work. and the ability to take one's god given talent, fashion it, shape it, mold it into something quite remarkable and remarkably effective and enduring. willie brown is a game changer. thank you, willie, for all your work, talents, brilliance, heart, your and forgiving a damn. thank you. [ applause ] on that note, i believe i should bring mayor brown to the stage. is that correct? ladies and gentlemen, mayor willie brown.

dazzled when we first -- encounter the fabulous san francisco, it very much mirrors how moved and excited i was when i first got here. i was mess morzed. i feel as a direct connection between his career in law, his work in the civil rights movement and that of his political career beyond which demonstrates an inherent and deeply felt caring and concern for people. but also, he has the talents and the gifts to translate that caring and concern into political and social action. a gift. he makes time for people. this is evidences not only by examining willie's record in public life but i can a test to this personally. when it was a long line of people waiting to see him. a long and varied line. some people -- it struck me we have a very broad cross section to see people who willie had made time for. i saw this every time i came to city hall to visit mayor brown. while he was certainly making time for me and he's always been very open with me and i appreciate that, willie. he's never ever not responded when i have reached out adhesion always made time for me. this is a man who made ti
